marijuana clinical studies
 
http://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...juana-research

After reading this article, I tried to find any studies.

I am stunned if there really are not any studies on this substance and it's affects to the human body.

Please post any links you may know of.

I see this quoted often, but I cannot find a direct link.

Thank you for any help in tracking down a link to the source of this quote.

It's a news article, but it doesn't cite the exact studies:
http://www.nature.com/nm/journal/v9/...1003-1227.html

You can find studies by searching PubMed for the keywords pain, memory, neurodegeneration, or inflammation and marijuana. You can use the tag [tiab] to only search the title+abstract for the keywords (thus getting more relevant results).

When I was studying astrocytes, I cam across this:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22385967

Which indicates that astrocytes have a lot to do with working memory, but also that THC actually acts on CB1 receptors in astrocytes to have memory impairment effects, NOT neurons!

The quoted article is this.

http://www.nature.com/nm/journal/v9/...1003-1227.html, only the abstract is available for free. You will need either a subscription (like through a university) or purchase.

As I mentioned, the news report is not informative as it doesn't list the citations. On PubMed there are freely accessible papers available, you can tick a box to only reveal those in your search.

The quote you are asking about is a quote relating to the endocannabinoid system. Your research should begin with the search term, "endocannabinoid system" rather than "marijuana pain neurodegeneration inflammation".


See this, for example.

Granny Storm Crow's List is a fairly complete compilation of articles written about the medical use of cannabis. The January 2012 list is available at this link:

http://www.letfreedomgrow.com/cmu/Gr...istJan2012.pdf

Articles are grouped alphabetically by topic. It is an indispensable resource for anyone beginning research on medical marijuana.

A few more links, that you've probably looked at already... :redface:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_cannabis

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_...ts_of_cannabis

Never, never, should it have been listed in this schedule... IMO
